Nintendo Download for November 30, 2017 – North America

The 3DS eShop goes on holiday for final Thursday of November.  I do not think anyone minds, as the Switch lineup continues to expand.  Tomorrow, we see the anticipated launch of Xenoblade Chronicles 2.  Let’s see what else is in store for us today!

The Switch’s high-quality monthly title will be available tomorrow, December 1, and it is none other than Xenoblade Chronicles 2.  Not only that, but you can get already pre-purchase the DLC that will be released next fall with a new story.  You can also enjoy the original Japanese voiceovers with English subtitles if that interests you.  If you are looking for a few games on December 5, be sure to check out Nine Parchments and Caveman Warriors.  If you needed something to play today there’s OPUS: The Day We Found Earth, Arcade Archives Traverse USA, Serial Cleaner, ACA NEOGEO WORLD HEROES, Syberia 2, MUJO, and Star Ghost.

The Wii U manages to get a few new games with Draw a Stickman: EPIC 2, BATTLE LODE RUNNER, and Bomberman ’93 being available today.  You can also check out My Nintendo for lots of holiday-themed rewards.  If you are not interested in new 3DS themes or device wallpapers, there’s even the Nindie Game Gold Points Rewards Vol. 2 which allows you to trade in gold coins for a download code for particular games.  That’s not all, as Fire Emblem Heroes got upgraded to version 2.0.0 earlier this week with some new features like the Weapon Refinery.  Be sure to check out the rest of the details below!

As always, the full release list is below, along with the prices, just below the screenshots. If you plan on downloading any of these games, let us know in the comments!
